about where wealthy folks are, with respect to the obama administration. and we saw all the data on wall street, the pendulum swinging away from barack obama towards mitt romney, how much of it is genuine self-interest in the sense of, just something as simple as the amount of taxes they will pay? >> i would say all of it. i really would. i would say all ofç it. the banks have two choices. four years ago, they had the choice between barack obama and they knew exactly who he was going to appoint in terms of ben bernanke and timothy geithner, the combination of the team that had saved the world from utter financial collapse. and that's what they knew they needed. and john mccain, on the other hand, was running around like a headless chicken, and they were scared, they were petrified he would become president, especially with his vice presidential candidate. so they voted in their self-interest, because they knew that the system needed to be saved. now that the system is saved is, they just want to pay less taxes. >> that gets to this question of narrow self-interest versus broad self-int
, they're smoking joints. >>> i dare you, like double dare you. obama administration bites and says, yeah, we're prepared to go off the fiscal cliff. >>> roger goodell, the commissioner football fans love to hate. there's a softer, gentler side of goodell. seriously. the nfl commissioner you don't know. "newsroom" starts now. >>> good morning. thank you so much for joining me. i'm carol costello. smoke 'em if you got 'em. recreational marijuana is officially legal in washington state. shall we say a rather mellow celebration at seattle's space needle? pot smokers lit up like it was new year's eve. new voter approved initiative went into effect midnight. this pot party technically, is illegal. wz's law bans smoking pot in public places. for now the seattle police department is turning a blind eye. this notice was sent to all officers last night. until further notice officers shall not take any enforcement action, other than to issue a verbal warning, for a violation of initiative 502. miguel marquez is in seattle. you were there at midnight for the big party, when the law went into effect.
. they are saying congress decided this in 1970. it's out of our hands. we, the obama administration, the justice department, have an obligation to enforce the law as it stands, and that right now is in direct conflict with two states, washington and colorado. let alone with the states that have medical marijuana in place which is over 18. because one of the criteria for being a schedule 1 narcotic is that there's no medical use demonstrated. so that is a fascinating conflict between the feds and states rights. people voting in these states increasingly to legalize at least medical marijuana. >> is there any sort of spillover effect you can see here on to other laws like immigration issues or gay marriage or anything else like that because i would think that the white house would not want to be seen as picking and choosing where it decides the federal government is supposed to be in charge. >> you are right. eio ctu w iue courts or congress can do is to actually address the fact that schedule 1 narcotics do -- in this case, may have medical use. at least 18 states have done so. and members of con
, that hits small business, big driver of employment. now the truth of the matter is obama administration said well, almost every small business in the country would fall below that. they are not rich people and it doesn't count. that universe of the small businesses that the white house is talking about includes the smallest internet vendor. the truth is that number of businesses that pay at the higher rate are all the ones of any size. that would do any hiring. this would really get at the republican objection. it would be interesting to see if the white house is trogg agree to that. >> bret: political curveball. >> thanks. >> bret: new rule for some taxpayer funded government workers about tweeting and what you and your neighbors really think about the federal employees. grapevine is next. >> bret: now some fresh pickings from the political "grey's anatomy." americans think public workers are better paid and more secure. and it turns out they're spot on. rasmussen report poll found that nearly two-third of private sector workers across the ideological spectrum believe that. and investors bu
case. even the obama administration has already said it doesn't think the constitutionality, defense of marriage act, can withhold a legal attack like this, wolf. >> we expect arguments to be made when and decision to be made? >> i would estimate sometime around march of next year for the arguments. probably sometime around june of next year for a decision by the court, wolf. >> all right, thanks very much. joe johns reporting for us. bring in our senior legal analyst, jeffrey toobin and analyst gloria borger. jeff, first to you, once the supreme court makes that final decision in the spring, maybe by june at the end of the term, we will know whether or not same sex marriage will be legal, not only in those states like new york state or maryland or iowa where it is legal, but throughout the united states. >> it is a possibility, there are limited possibilities. the court specifically took nose in this case, whether the question of whether the people defending the law in california even have the right to be in court. do they have standing. they could simply rule that the people defend
. the obama administration wants to send a clear message that while it supports syria's coalition opposition, to lead syria's democratic transition when the assad regime falls, there is no place for extremism in the country's future. so you see these parallel actions. recognizing the opposition formally but at the same time labeling certain parts of it as, you know, terrorists. so that's an important distinction there. and all eyes are glued to whether chemical weapons will be used or not. >> as you can allude to, they're opening the door for that possibility down the road. but responsibly. >> and we should point out that the full interview with president obama and the first lady will air on friday on "20/20" and "nightline." a cool tradition that barbara gets to sit down in the white house during the holidays and talk to both. certainly no shortage of topics as 2012 winds down. >> but yet the platform is not like she gets extended time for it. "20/20" is still the same amount of time, even though topics are -- >> we'll be back. stay with us. >>> well, this is big. there's a potential breakt
states, considering it to be the movement of chemical weapons to extremists and obama administration said their trigger for action would be any move by syria to use the weapons. >>gregg: how about this, could michelle obama have a future in our political insiders will weigh in on that. >>heather: and a guaranteed investment, but why are so many investors turning their back on gold at this time? gold at this time? that is ahead. only citi price d automatically searches for the lowest price. and if it findone, you get refunded the difference. just use your citi card and register your purchase online. have a super sparkly day! ok.

, surprise, obama administration doubles down on green energy and find out how much the taxpayer will have to shell out this time around. and also new at 10, enough obamacare laws are starting to go into effect and for restaurants across the country. one new regulation that could cost businesses millions, again, that's coming up the top of the hour and it will be new at 10. something serious going on here, there are reports that syria is mixing chemical weapons and loading them into bombs. sarin gas is theeprecise weapons grade material they're talking about here. nbc news reports that the the syrian military is waiting for orders from president al-assad to drop the bombs on its own civilians. the united states warned any use of chemical weapons would trigger western intervention. secretary of state hillary clinton meets russian diplomates and syria, chemical weapons, they will be discussed. and now to egypt. five people dead after huge protests in the streets of cairo and hurled rocks, fire bombs to protest morsi's seizure of near unrestricted powers and rush-through adoption of the quick
today some members of the obama administration met with members of congress to discuss the libyan chaos. this story just drip, drip, drip. but in egypt things are getting very intense. as thousands of protesters demonstrate against the muslim brotherhood trying to seize totalitarian powers in that country as we predicted they would. sadly many measures don't care about what happens over seas but author brad thor who writes contemporary thrillers believes there suspect more to the libyan situation than we know. there thor, the author of the book blacklist joins us now from chicago. what's your headline here, brad? >> well, my headline is next week it's going to be three months since the killing of ambassador stevens and we don't know any more now than we did three months ago. and that is not good for our republic. >> bill: do you see because you research your buicks fairly thoroughly. the key to selling books in your genre is to make them realistic that people who read them go you know, this could really happen. so when you are looking at what happened in benghazi, libya, what are the qu
marijuana law, the obama administration is considering ways to crack down on the reforms. top officials are looking at how to use the federal government to reverse the impact of the new laws, according to a report in "the new york times." now the options include denying federal grants to states that legalize pot, aggressively prosecuting pot users in those two states under the federal laws, or most controversially, just taking these states to court. then the administration could get a formal ruling that the federal laws against pot just cancel out these new state laws. all those proposals are premised on fighting against the new politics and spirit that has been take hold in these states. but the obama administration could also embrace this as a moment to rethink the entire drug war. it could ask congress to at least lower marijuana's current classification as a schedule 1 substance. that is the anachronistic and grave category for drugs like heroin, which have no prospect of safe or medical use. or look, the administration could do for pot what it did for children of undocumented worke
in the obama administration, but you were, most recently, one of president obama's principle surrogates in the spanish language media. what did the election look like from your point of view? what can you tell us that we didn't read in the newspaper? you know, from your personal experience, tell us what happened. >> i think the way to understand, kind of my role of the surrogate this year, is in juxtaposition to four years ago. basically played the same role in 2008 and 2012 #. the fascinating thing for me as i emergedded from government and went back out into campaign land was the proliferation of spanish media outlets. in 2008, spanish language media essentially met national spanish language media, which was two. local media in south florida, and that's pretty much the sum total of what -- of the outlets i hit over and over and over and over again four years. this time, i ended up doing media in, again, the national, mundo, and c-span espanol has a bigger foot print, and in ten states, i did radio in iowa and ohio, in north carolina, in virginia. obviously, in florida, but in nevada a
administration, but you were most recently president, one of of president obama's principal surrogates in spanish-language media. what did the election look like from your point of view, you know, what can you tell us about that we didn't read in the newspaper, and, you know, from your personal experience, tell us what happened. >> i think the way to understand kind of my role as a surrogate this year is in juxtaposition to four years ago. i basically played the same role in '08 and '12 in terms of outreach to spanish-language media on behalf of the president and then-candidate. and the fascinating thing for me as i emerged from government and went out, back into campaign land was the proliferation of spanish-language media outlets. in 2008 spanish-language media essentially meant national spanish-language media which was two, univision and telemundo. a little bit of cnn in espanol. and local media in south florida. and that's pretty much the sum total of what, of the outlets that i hit over and over and over and over again four years ago. this time i ended up doing media in, again, the national,
. >> reporter: and just why would the obama administration balk at enforcing federal laws that have been on the books for decades. there is the political consideration. >> here you've got two states that went for president obama, colorado was a swing state. the people of those states have spoken and for the federal government now to come in and say, we want to quash your popular mandate, there are political risks to doing that. >> reporter: there is also some precedent from medical marijuana, which is already legal in 18 states and the district of columbia. but don't think that even medical marijuana is exempt from possible department of justice scrutiny. a case decided by the supreme court during the bush administration says the feds can go after that too. president obama also said earlier this year that we're not going to be legalizing weed anytime soon. joe johns, cnn, washington. >> joe, thank you very much. >>> egypt's president is trying to diffuse the biggest crisis he's faced. about an hour ago, mohamed morsi canceled a decree giving him sweeping powers which ignited furious demo
-nook swooped in to acquire nexen for a cool $15 billion. note to the obama administration, it is not happening in a bubble. last year you'll recall the obama administration put off a decision on the excel pipeline, an extension of a pipeline that would connect the oil in alberta to the gulf of mexico and international markets. the democrats killed it because of concerns from environmentalists. the proposed route crossed the aquifer in nebraska and white house and state department officials could have just insisted on rerouting the pipe, but they didn't. a bad move, one that was highly thought to play to the president's base. now that the elections are over, a review of a new route will begin sometime next year. the leakages of that pipe were a minor concern, though it got all the headlines. a more legitimate environmental concern is carbon emissions. processing crude that is mined from the oil sands emits double the emissions of regular drilled oil. but oil sands still -- that still scarce, oil is still scarce, the chinese lead lots of it, and the canadians have lots of it. president obama cam
egypt's already ailing economy. >>> the obama administration tightening its ties to syria's main opposition group. the u.s. is expected to recognize the new opposition council as the only legitimate representative of the syrian people at an international conference in morocco. britain and france, they've already extended full recognition to that coalition. >>> well, secretary of state, hillary clinton, was supposed to represent the u.s. tomorrow at the friends of syria meeting in mow co but she has a -- morocco but she has a stomach flu. >>> congress is scheduled to break for the holidays this friday. as alison burns reports from our washington, d.c. newsroom, both parties have their sticking points. alison? >> reporter: tori, the pressure is on. members of congress are back this morning after a long weekend. and in just about 15 minutes, democrats will be speaking out about the fiscal cliff saying medicaid should not be subject to cuts. in the past 48 hours since president obama and john boehner met face to face, no details on the discussions have -- have been released. the pres
declared a terrorist organization by the obama administration. it's a fierce group of fighters waging a deadly battle against bashar al assad. cnn's arwa damon who has spent time in syria reports that other rebels don't agree with al nusra's politics but admire the group's determination to get rid of the assad regime. >> potential threat of a chemical weapons attack by the syrian regime forces nato to rely on rebels who may or may not be trustworthy to secure these stockpiles. brian todd looks into this part of the story. >> reporter: there's enough chaos afoot to alarm western officials about what may happen to the munitions. a senior u.s. official and top diplomat tell cnn, the u.s. and its allies are using defense contractors to train syrian rebels on how to secure chemical weapons stockpiles. our sources say the training is taking place in jordan and it,ky. they tell us the syrian rebels are being trained on how to monitor and secure stockpiles but also on handling the weapons sites and weapons materials. >> how dicy is it to train syrian rebels on actually handling the materials?
think the obama administration, the justice department are trying to figure it out because what happened on election day was in washington and colorado it became the first two states in the country and actually the first two political jurisdictions anywhere in the world to decide to legally regulate marijuana like alcohol, so the feds have to figure this out. >> a little like alcohol. i can buy as many bottles of beer as i want. i can only have an ounce of marijuana in washington and in colorado, right? >> that's right. it's important to say, by the way, that what's going to happen this week in washington state and next month in colorado is just going to make it legal to possess up to an ounce in the privacy of your home. you can't go out smoking in public, all this sort of thing. the part -- >> you have to stay in your home really? >> yes. washington is going to be private. not puffing down the street. this is going to be fairly subtle. the part of the laws that say that washington and colorado state governments should set up a legal regulatory system like with alcohol, those don't ente
are worried about. there is all this talk whether the obama administration will crackdown on colorado and washington, and not let them do it. >> no. >> cenk: how do you think that will play out. >> first of all he doesn't have to worry about an election. obama has tipped his hand when he legalized the gay marriage. so all he has to do is reschedule pot from scheduled one to schedule two then it becomes a medical issue and then the states can decide themselves if they want it legal or not. >> cenk: tommy, he broke records on drug dispensary raids his first term. he appointed the bush appointee the head of the dea. >> he's also a black guy from hawai'i who used to surf. >> cenk: most importantly, he used to smoke. >> that's what i'm saying into that's what drives me crazy. at least the last three presidents smoked marijuana. they didn't serve any jail time. they became president of the united states. and you served nine months. >> not only a pot smoker, but cocaine user, george bush. >> cenk: yes. >> the hypocrisy are bedfellows. >> cenk: i heard you took the plea deal to spare your son
. >> reporter: wolf, the challenge is for the obama administration to figure out exactly what bashar al assad is up to with his deadly arsenal. the horror remains unspeakable. 25 years ago saddam hussein unleashed one of the worst poison gas attacks in history. thousands were killed. now, in syria, u.s. concerns are growing by the hour that bashar al assad may be planning the same thing against his citizens. >> the intelligence that we have raises serious concerns that this is being considered. >> reporter: u.s. intelligence shows syria has mixed chemical compounds needed to make a deadly agent that can quickly kill thousands. >> the united states and our allies are facing the prospect of an imminent use of weapons of mass destruction in syria. and this may be the last warning we get. >> reporter: the u.s. is not precisely saying what the syrians are doing, but there are two ways of mixing elements to make a saren filled weapon. >> you have to handle it very, very carefully. a drop will kill you. often it's done at the last minute. there's another style. >> reporter: chemicals placed in an ar
that marijuana is everybody and america is the largest jailer per capita in the world. we are hoping the obama administration will take opportunity on second administration lame duck working on legacy to say hey, the voters -- the citizens voted in these two states. let's let the states work it out. >> geraldo: that's vivian mcpeak and trip keebler weren't you a federal prosecutor in that very office? >> i'm going to tell you they are not going to let this go and happen in the state. no, the feds can come in, as you know, as you just said and trump anything that the state does. >> controlled substances abuse act into federal law? >> right. when i was a federal prosecutor we had a zero tolerance program came in from the border of canada. put in jail for a day. record was expunged. little bit of a sign. >> >> do you think the fed are going to do that even the majority. >> attorney's office, yes. >> you have got 18 states passing medical marijuana already. a third the american people. isn't the writing on the wall here, this prohibition of marijuana is over? >> i really think is, look. you do as
been very one-sided. >> bill: right. so that the obama administration knows that, the democratic party knows it's all going their way, all the propaganda, all the stuff that reaches the american people through the myriad of media outlets is all about tax rates for the rich and nothing about getting spendin spending r control. they walk into the room and go blank you guys, we're not giving you anything. we know the real story won't be reported. it's frightening. >> it is. the other piece of this, bill, that's very important is the consequence of not tackling the entitlement spending and reforming the programs so they cost less. it's very severe. they're not immediate. the president has what he considers to be some time to either deal with this or perhaps not deal with it and he leaves office and it's for the next person to deal with. now, it would take a lot of courage for him and he would have to break a lot of china in his own party to say we've got a short-term fiscal cliff and we've got a bi bigger one that that. i want to head it all off, and it will take a bargain to do it and i'm
obama administration and both charles and i agree that it probably is the most liberal administration ever in the united states. they say, look, we are elected. the folks elected us and we haven't hidden our agenda of elevating all americans to a certain lifestyle, a certain standard of living. in order to do that, we have to take from those who have and give to those below the standard of living that we want. and the folks said yes. that's their argument. >> look, i believe that when you look at the issue of taxation, when you ask as liberals do what's the fair share, the idea is that the government has a claim on your earnings, a moral claim, certain amount, maybe, who knows how much. and then it can dispense with it as it wants. now with a church it ties -- tithes, one tenth claim on your earnings that's what the is in the bible and it spends as it wishes. that's not how a government ought to work. a government ought to work from the other end. what do we need for roads and bridges, for raising an army and in a modern economy, a modern state a safety net for people who can't provid

or leaving. >> reporter: how many will end up in america? there is criticism of the obama administration and they feel it has been too muted in terms of the violence we see now and what the new government is doing to protect the minorities, such as the coptic christians. >> reporter: thank you. earlier in our program, 100,000 have fled, recently. so clearly, more are coming. thank you. >> jamie: we are celebrating the trail blazers of human space flight. it's been 40 years since the last mission to the moon, capping off an incredible run for the american space program. this is one of the original pioneer who is ventured into the unknown, rusty schwicart, he sits down with us next. >> hipety, hopety, hipety, hopety, over the hill, land hill. da-da-da-da-da-da-da-dah. hipety hopety along. and cut! very good. people are always asking me how we make these geico adverts. so we're taking you behind the scenes. this coffee cup, for example, is computer animated. it's not real. geico's customer satisfaction is quite real though. this computer-animated coffee tastes dreadful. geico. 15 minutes co
every year of the obama administration and now, we're at historic highs. the same as we were five years ago. the difference is, our spending has increased a trillion dollars. >> yeah, but a lot of that spending is things to help the economy. it's the payroll tax cut extension, which your party supported. it's extending unemployment benefits. it's things like that. t the war. >> that's going to be the challenge of the whole perspective. we've got two philosophies. one says we're spending too much. the other saying we're not spending enough. that's hurting our economy. obviously, the last four years have been more focused on the spending. we continue to pile up more and more debt, we've crossed 100% of debt to gdp. >> but you're line of thinking, the tax side, so we end up spending more thanks to democrats and the country is going to a worst place. >> the context is really important on this. in 2003 when tax rates were brought down. and then in 2010, we were still in a bad place, the president and democrats said the economy's weak, we can't raise taxing on anybody, including the upper 2%
like president reagan was in the -pwhite house to call a spade a spade. the obama administration is doing nothing and allow turkey and russia to dance all over the sanctions and lip service against assad. yes, why can't we call the russians out? they were sending 200 tons of currency to pay their generals. why can't we push that openly? russia is teetering pulling away from assad. we need to start to influence rebels about, free syria army. even if assad leaves, russia and turkey are positioning themselves to have significant influence on a regime that will be after assad and it won't be an ally of the united states. melissa: thanks so much for coming on. please have a safe trip. we look forward to having back soon. >> absolutely. thanks, melissa. melissa: this is pretty crazy. look at this video. these are the chrysler employees that were caught red-handed drinking and smoking something on the job in 2010. 13 of them were fired. two were suspended without pay. well, now, they are all back at work. building your cars. thanks to a union-backed arbitrator. as you know, chrysler bor
and washington. new reports this morning the obama administration might sue the state. recently passed initiatives decriminalized the recreational use of pot. but it is still illegal under federal law. options for the administration include preventing the states from regulating and taxing marijuana or cutting off federal cash. a new jersey town acting like the grinch trying to tear down one man's christmas spirit. the fight is over this 400-foot inflatable santa. the owner of seasonal world says there is no ordinance but he has been issued five tickets ordering him to take it down. the mayor calling it a hazard because it could blow over. >> what i do every year and i have been doing it for 12 years and they have been basically harassing me for 12 years. >> the owner of seasonal world says he has no intention of moving santa and he will take the battle to court after christmas. a fireworks display in burma goes terribly wrong when explosions go off into the crowd.

year in the obama administration, and now we're at historic highs. the difference is our spending increased a trillion dollars from five years ago, but the revenue is the same. >> a lot of that spending is things to help the economy, right? it's the payroll tax cut extension, which your party supported, right? it's extending unemployment benefits and things like that. it's the war. >> right. that's going to be the challenge of the whole perspective right now. we have two philosophies. one is saying we're spending too much and the other is saying we don't spend enough. obviously the last four years are spending more to stimulate. i'm not sure if that will work long-term. we've crossed 100% of debt to gdp. i don't think that gets better as you get higher. >> the only thing that confuses me about it, i feel like in a situation where all you do is keep cutting taxes and have a revenue problem, right? you give a tax cut to the middle class you don't want it to take it away from them. you keep giving out things p and you never take them back. >> well, that's the same thing we did on the
